Q. A journal is asking me for a password to get to the full-text.

Answer

There are a few reasons why you may be asked for a password by a journal's website:

  1. The library has a special username and password for the journal. You can find the list at the link provided below.
  2. If the journal is included in the library's list of online journals (be sure to also check the coverage dates), there might be an issue with the publisher. Please email us at askus@unmc.edu or call 402-559-6221 with the name of the journal and we will check into the issue.
  3. The library may not subscribe to the journal. Search the Online Journal Finder and Helix Library Catalog to check our holdings. If the library does not have it listed or does not have the correct date range, you may order the article through interlibrary loan.
